Movie Review: Kick-Ass 2

Movie Review: Kick-Ass 2

When the first Kick-Ass came out in 2010 it was controversial, and beloved. Many were horrified by the violence inflicted by a young Chloe Grace Moretz playing the titular anti-hero Hit Girl, others loved the new and original take on the superhero genre. Three years later the sequel was released, and after all the controversy, and hype of the original film the sequel had a lot to live up to. Unfortunately for the most part this sequel is a slight step down in quality. It still has enough qualities to make it worthwhile to watch but overall it doesn’t quite rev up to the same speed as the original. Although it’s based on the comic series...

Method to Her Madness: A Look at Cersei Lannister

Method to Her Madness: A Look at Cersei Lannister

  “When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.” These words were spoken by a woman who, from the moment we first met her, made it known that she not only knows how to play the game, but she plays it well. Cersei Lannister is arguably one of the most powerful women in Westros. She betrayed her husband, King Robert Baratheon, on many occasions, was mother to one of the most hated characters in Game of Thrones, and even conspired to kill her youngest brother. Her list of sins may be as extensive as Tyrion’s if not longer. Season Four saw the end of two of the most villainous characters in a world where there are no clear...

David Simon Miniseries SHOW ME A HERO His Next For HBO

HBOWatch has been speculating for a long while on what David Simon might do next for HBO and we now know it is a six-hour miniseries entitled SHOW ME A HERO. It has officially gotten the greenlight from the network. What is it about, you ask? Information from Deadline states the following: It tells the story of Nick Wasicsko, the youngest big-city mayor in the nation who finds himself thrust into the center of a racial controversy when a federal court orders him to build a small number of low-income housing units in the white neighborhoods of his town, Yonkers, N.Y. His attempt to do so tears the city apart, paralyzes the municipal...

Hard Knocks Season 9 Preview: Atlanta Falcons

Hard Knocks Season 9 Preview: Atlanta Falcons

On the surface, the Atlanta Falcons was one of the most straightforward and uneventful teams for a new season of HBO’s Hard Knocks. However, an eventful offseason and a chance to improve on a disappointing 2013 season will help add some spice to the show. For those unfamiliar with the team, here are eight things to watch for when Hard Knocks returns on Tuesday:   1. Rookie Rundown The transition from the college ranks to the NFL is a big one. Many players struggle to adjust to the speed and physicality of the professional game. After a rough 2013 season, the Falcons were in a position to take arguably the most pro-ready player...

The Leftovers Season 1: “Gladys”

The Leftovers Season 1: “Gladys”

“One of our…” Anyone who has watched The Leftovers so far has surely experienced at least one moment of discomfort when it comes to the Guilty Remnant. As someone who read the book, I have a bit more understanding of their cause than the show has provided thus far but the entire organization has served its purpose of providing a terrifying reality of how people cope with tragedy. A religious cult, whose main desire is to constantly remind the world of those they have lost, is not a far cry from what might actually happen in our society should something like the Rapture ever happen. The episode began with the horrifying scene where a...

Movie Review: Getaway

Movie Review: Getaway

Many times in reviews the term “mindless entertainment” is thrown around, with such ease that the term itself has become a cliché. However for a film as clichéd and campy as Getaway it’s the only real term you can use. Getaway is not a smart film, but if you are looking for a film to watch while eating dinner, or entertaining guests at a party and want to have some explosions in the background this is a wise choice. Ethan Hawke plays an ex-racecar driver who discovers his wife has been kidnapped by a strange man. The man proceeds to instruct Hawke to do tasks for him in order to get his wife back. The man (played by Jon Voight)...
